The Differing Amounts of Freedom Parents Allow Their Preschool Sons and Daughters to Discuss Body Self Concept.
Story, Marilyn
Parents of all children in a university home economics department preschool (N=18), a university day care center (N=40), and a Montessori Method preschool (N=36) were contacted to determine if they allowed their preschool children differing amounts of freedom to discuss body self-concepts according to sex of the child or type of preschool the child attended. Parents more frequently refused to allow daughters than sons to participate in a body self-concept interview. Parents from the university home economics department preschool had a higher refusal rate than parents from either of the other preschools. (Author)
